Clarence Ashley-Dark Holler (October 23, 1929)

I was born in old Virginia
South Carolina I did go
There I courted a pretty little women
But her age I did not know

Well her hair was brown and curly
And her cheeks was rosy red
On her breasts she wore white lilies
For the tears that I have shed

When I'm asleep I'm dreaming about you
When I wake I have no rest
Ever moment seems like an hour
All the pain rolls through my breast

I'd rather be in some dark hollow
Where the sun don't ever shine
Than for you to be some other man's darling
When you ain't no longer mine


Papa says I must not marry
Papa says it'll never do
But little girl if you are willing
I will run away with you

For I'd rather be in some dark hollow
Where the sun don't ever shine
Than for you to be some other man's darling
When you ain't no longer mine

When I'm asleep I'm dreaming about you
When I wake I have no rest
Every moment seems like an hour
All the pain rolls through my breast
